So what is Ridley Scott directing next?

OK, I'm confused. A while back it was reported that Ridley Scott was returning to SF and would direct a movie based on Joe Haldeman's The Forever War.

The book deals with an interstellar war from the point of view of one of the Earth soldiers. Due to the effect of time dilation many years pass between each battle and by the time the soldiers make it back to Earth they find 1000s of years have passed and human society has changed dramatically.

Fair enough. I'll look forward to that. Then a few weeks ago it was reported that he would be directing a prequel to his original Alien. Great! I love the original and am glad the next movie is in his capable hands. No more AVP please, thank you very much.

Now today you can add to the list Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. (Plus if you look at the IMDB you can see many more projects under his name.)

I guess time will tell...
